Then something unimaginable happened that very night, a poisonous snake got caught in the mousetrap and bit the farmer’s wife. She developed a raging fever, and everyone knows you treat a fever with chicken soup. So the farmer took his axe to the barn for the main ingredient! As his wife's condition deteriorated and neighbours gathered, he had to butcher the pig to feed them.
Unfortunately, the farmer’s wife died and many people came to the funeral so the farmer had to slaughter the cow to make dinner for them all. In the end, everybody lost.
Before dismissing and deciding somebody else's problem does not concern you, remember what the Bible says : ' If one member suffers, all the members suffer.“ (1 Corinthians 12:26 NKJV). Don't just sit on the sideline whilst someone is hurting because when tomorrow comes, it may be your turn.
Each of us is a vital thread in another person’s tapestry and our lives are woven together for a reason thus let’s encourage the disheartened and help the weak amongst us.
1 Thessalonians 5:14
And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone.
